Will not attend Biden’s inauguration ceremony: Trump

Washington: United States President Donald Trump has said that he will not attend the inauguration of US President-elect Joe Biden.

Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will take the oath of office from the Capitol’s West Front on January 20.

The inauguration is the formal ceremony that marks the start of a new presidency and takes place in Washington DC. It has been customary for the outgoing president to attend the inauguration ceremony.

“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th,” Trump said in a tweet on Friday.

The tweet came a day after Trump said he disagrees with the outcome of the election but there would be an “orderly transition on January 20th”.
